Leaks & Damaged, Old, Or Improperly Installed Flashing Often Go Hand In Hand, But We Can Help!
A leak is one of the last ways someone wants to figure out that their chimney needs to be repaired or possibly replaced. And yet, this is an all-too-common narrative, making many homeowners throughout the Middle TN region wish they had their chimneys inspected more frequently. At Sweeps and Ladders, we’d rather you avoid this entirely. We stress the importance of having your chimney inspected at least once a year, so that any and all damage is addressed as soon as possible.
When you schedule a chimney inspection with us, we’ll first look where leaks often originate: the flashing. Located where the chimney and roof meet, the flashing is a small sheet metal component with an important job of keeping everything tight and sealed together. With such an important job, it’s no wonder it receives so much attention from chimney professionals.
How Does Damage To Your Flashing Occur?
Your chimney system receives plenty of exposure to the elements, as it is positioned on your home where Mother Nature arguably hits the hardest. While the weather can present a huge challenge to your chimney, flashing damage can be caused by a number of factors:
- Tampering by squirrels, birds, and other troublesome animals
- Foundation settling
- Accumulation of rust and wear over time
- Other factors
No matter the condition of your flashing and what caused its damage, we are confident we possess what is needed to ensure the damage is addressed in its entirety, and that your chimney is left in a far superior condition then when we first arrived.
We’ve truly seen and done it all, and no project is too big or small for our capable technicians! So, whether your flashing requires a few simple repairs or needs to be replaced entirely, we’re the company up for the job. We address a wide spectrum of problems pertaining to chimneys, will quickly source the issue with yours, and ensure your chimney will hold up well and stay leak free in the future.
